About this recipe: This is my take on Mexican guacamole with a Japanese kick. Avocado combines with chillies, wasabi, lime and more for a fantastic dip for tortilla chips, crudites or even use it to make sushi.

  1. Place the avocados, lime juice, onion, chilli, shiso leaf, ginger, wasabi paste, white pepper and hot sauce into a bowl. Mash until no large pieces of avocado remain, or to your desired consistency. Gently fold in the chopped tomato and season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

Shiso leaves

Look for shiso leaves online or in Japanese specialty shops. In a pinch, substitute with fresh mint.
